Toronto

My nature photography tends towards impressionistic abstraction. The image strikes a chord on an emotional level before we can rationalize it. By making wearable and useable objects with my photographs I hope to make people feel closer to nature, and to remind them of the beauty that is life.

A native Torontonian, I hold dual citizenship: Canadian and Maltese. My studies in drama, set and lighting design, painting, graphic design and photography have given me an excellent foundation in design and art. I have been a professional graphic designer for the past twenty years and about ten years ago I turned my passion for design and photography into my artform. I have had several exhibitions since then. Recently I’ve combined my design, photography and artistic talents to create fashion and home décor accessories. I love making people feel connected to eachother and the world around us through my creations.
